Prices were a bit high, especially including sides, but worth it for a nice (meaty) night out.more

And for me as well it was the last one to visit from that list. So after spending best part of the last half year venturing to Pitt Cue Co. and Bodeans in Soho, The Joint in Brixton (and the newly opened in Marylebone) and Red Dog...more
